Paper Details the Concept of a Compact Tokamak Using HTS Magnets


PPPL's Jon Menard

Jon Menard of PPPL has released a paper discussing the feasibility and concept of Compact Tokamaks fusion reactors using HTS (High Temperature Superconductor) magnets. HTS magnets can produce higher magnetic fields in a smaller space. This is important as it is less expensive to produce and iterate smaller reactors than large multi-billion dollar reactors such ITER. The intention is that this will influence how future research is conducted with the goal of producing a more viable fusion reactor in a shorter time frame and at lower cost.
